INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Two more former college football players have filed a lawsuit against the NCAA stemming from concussions and brain injuries.

John DuRocher, a quarterback at Washington and Oregon, and Darin Harris, a safety at Washington, are seeking more than $5 million in damages. Both say they sustained repeated head injuries, despite promises that they would be competing in a protected college environment.

The class-action suit was filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court of Southern Indiana.

Helmet-manufacturer Riddell and its parent company, Easton-Bell Sports, are also named in the complaint.

It’s another legal headache for the NCAA, which is facing another concussion lawsuit in Illinois federal court and a California suit to recover money from using players’ likenesses and images in a video game.
